Happy almost weekend!
If you haven't heard, I'm starting a new blogger project I've titled, My Mindy Project! Where every week this year, I will tackle a question from Mindy Kaling's, "Questions I Ask When I Want to Talk About Myself."
This week's topic card looks like this:
and has a
charming story on the back of Mindy's first apartment.
The question I'm tackling this week from the back of the card is:
"What was your first apartment like? Were your parents horrified when they came to see it?"
My first apartment was actually really nice on the inside. 4 huge bedrooms, individual leases, walk in closets, private bathrooms for all 4, and that's pretty much where the niceness ended. The office management fined for every single detail, cars got broken into on a nightly basis, parties would be going on outside almost every weekend night, and they had the tiniest parking spaces you've ever seen. Needless to say, it was pretty rough. I tried to shelter my parents from that aspect of the apartment and focused on the inside and my awesome roommates, when we could keep them.
And then, a second question:
"If your apartment had relatively cheap rent, a pretty nice backyard, and you felt safe 85 percent of the time (even if there were a few drug busts next door), would you renew your lease?"
All in all though, I did feel pretty safe there. We lived on the third floor (a work out in itself), my car had never been broken into, and I never had klepto roommates. I renewed the lease before deciding to move to Louisiana, and ended up breaking it after.
Tell me in the comments what your first apartment was like!
